Testimonials About Our Lake Forest Veterinarians

Read what our patients are saying about us below:

"We found a practice where everybody is not only capable but also very sensitive with both animals and owners. Our dogs are in good hands with Dr. McKenna, who always makes time to talk with us. Dr. DiFuccia was extremely helpful too when we needed him. Staff is pleasant, location is nice. We highly recommend it!"

- Sylvia W.

"I love this place and the staff is beyond wonderful. Dr.DiFuccia is truly an amazing vet and an amazing human being. I'm truly blessed to have these people in my corner. When any of my animals get sick they definitely go beyond any expectations. I couldn't ask for a better place to bring my animals"

- Tammy W.

"Dr.s McKenna and DiFuccia are thorough, caring and delightfully in tune with cats in a dog world. We have one we nickname the "Rain Man" and even he survives the trauma under their kind tutelage. We wouldn't take any of our herd to another doctor and feel the prices charged are fair for the incredible quality of care. The folks at the front desk are just as good as the ones in back and I can't speak highly enough of the professionalism and caring everyone in the practice displays during every visit. We have seen them handle everything from neutering to end of life and the experience is invariably superlative. Love these guys!"

"The staff, and especially the veterinarians, at the Animal Hospital of West Lake Forest are absolutely phenomenal. I have used them as long as I have had pets, and despite moving 30 minutes away, I refuse to move my pet care elsewhere. I drive past no less than four other clinics en route to the AHWLF... I highly recommend this practice to anyone in the area who has pets."

- Kelly S.

"After moving from the city to the North Shore I was referred to W Lake Forest Animal Hospital by a friend / vet tech who works with a number of vets in the area. My dog is 4 years old and (cross-fingers) only needs the annual checkup, shots, and heartworm and flea + tick meds. So far we've seen two of the doctors here and I've been happy with the knowledge, care and patience they show me and my pup. My pup is a nervous nelly in general, and while she does shake when she realizes we're at the vet, the appointments are the right amount of fast so we're in and out likely split! I recommend W Lake Forest Animal Hospital!"

"Outstanding veterinary clinic. We had 2 Scottish Folds, both of which had IBD. Dr. DiFuccia was great with both of them. He was attentive and very caring. When we consulted with Dr. Google, he was very open to new thoughts, ideas and treatment. He would also give us choices instead of insisting that there was only one solution. The staff here is wonderful. Very responsive to out kitties' needs. We found the prices to be quite reasonable. Highly recommended"

"Not my normal vet but I was able to take my beloved cat, Laila, here on a weekend when she was having a health emergency with her eye and I couldn't get into my normal vet. They were friendly and thorough and the vet really cared about Laila. They did a thorough exam and her eye infection/scratch cleared up with the medication they gave. Highly recommend!! They have great hours, caring staff, and knowledgeable. I felt Laila got exceptional care."

"Our family dogs have been seen by Dr. McKenna for over 20 years, he's terrific - and now with a dog of my own I see his new partner Dr. DiFuccia who's awesome; I live in downtown Chicago but make the drive out because he's worth it. Dr. DiFuccia always promptly responds to my calls (within a few hours at the very most), provides thoughtful recommendations for my dog's health - of which he always starts with the most simple/holistic/least invasive option, and has gone the extra mile overnighting antibiotics when my dog was attacked by another dog. This is a practice that you can fully trust - I'm happy to see other reviews also attest to the quality both vets and their staff."

- Catherine C.

"I was referred to the Animal Hospital of West Lake Forest after getting a new miniature schnauzer puppy last year. This place is wonderful. They really listen to your cares and concerns about your furry children. I see Dr. DiFuccia and I can not say enough good things about him. He is open minded and very flexible when it comes to your desires for the pet's well-being. He doesn't force medications on you and definitely makes suggestions when you ask about taking a more natural approach to your pet's health.

I guarantee that you will not be disappointed with the care that you and your pet receive when visiting this great place.

"Dr. DiFuccia has been absolutely amazing in helping with our Lab. We talked through many options when our dog had a blown ACL knee and his advice was spot on. He provides honest, friendly, and expert advice. I've experienced 3 vets in the past in Chicago and Dr. DiFuccia is easily the best and I will continue to go to him indefinitely."

- Scott M.

"I don't ordinarily write reviews, but I was compelled after the kindness and compassion that was shown to me during an unfortunate circumstance. I had to say goodbye to an old friend, if you know what I mean. Dr. Breslin was kind and understanding of my dog's situation and my reluctancy to let him go. They allowed me all the time I needed and did not rush me and kept me informed of how the procedure would take place. I've never done this before and they made me feel comfortable. They handled my dog with care and respect. It may sound tacky but cost was a consideration and I think they were very fair. For that I highly recommend their services."

- Jeffery W.

"I just had my 11 month old German Shepherd neutered by Dr. DiFuccia and can't thank him and his staff enough for taking such excellent care of our dog. Everybody genuinely seems to care about their patients and Dr DiFuccia's is a very knowledgeable and caring vet. I highly recommend this practice."
